  1. 2018 New Music

    Apologies. I should have said, up to 3 words. Or just offered a 3 word review. Let me try again..... First Aid Kit - Potential grower fam.
  2. 2018 New Music

    Going to offer a 3 word review of all the new albums I listen to. So far.... First Aid Kid - Potential grower Tuneyards - Full o’ bangers Tune in next week for more brevity.
  3. Album of the Year 2017

    On reflection, I’d now place The War On Drugs much higher. I keep coming back to it, very much looking forward to seeing them at APE. I’ve also listened to Wolf Parade for the first time this week, would definitely have made my top 20. That is all.

    I was standing just past the sound desk, but on the left hand side, sound was perfect!

    I'm on my 4th listen and it's definitely getting better and better. Tickets for their tour in April are dirt cheap so I'll see if the live show has come on at all.

    I’m going to say with confidence that Shame - Songs Of Praise is the AOTY so far. Not the greatest accolade seeing as though we’re only 13 days into the year, but it’s top of the pile thus far. Worth a listen if you like Idles debut last year. Also has a touch of The Cribs about it in places.
  7. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Just bought our first house so all funds tied up in that for the foreseeable future. I do have a stag do in Lisbon in June as well as The National day of APE to look forward to as well. Other than that, I will be enjoying glorious walks in the Bedfordshire countryside instead of the smog of London!

    We had RTJ, Bonobo, Flaming Lips and The XX early doors last year. Hopefully some good stuff on the way.

    I've never heard of Hookworms, but I like that a lot!
  10. The National

    Embarrassingly, I only listened to the Cherry Tree EP for the first time this week. It’s brilliant. I forgot to mention The Virginia EP in my last post, which I also love.

    Just had a look on Spotify and her most popular track is called Deepthroat. 2nd most popular is called Vagina. One for the kids.
  12. The National

    You really can’t go wrong with any of their albums from Alligator onwards, but for accessibility I would go.... High Violet Sleep Well Beast Alligator Trouble Will Find Me They are all brilliant in their own way and you will learn to love them equally. It’s like having multiple children, you love them all dearly, but occasionally one does something to make them your favourite.
  13. Album of the Year 2017

    Maybe I’m being overly harsh, but I saw them support someone this year, can’t remember who. Was thoroughly bored, in fact I was as bored as they looked on stage!
  14. Album of the Year 2017

    Hopefully it’s not Sundara Karma....
  15. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    So who have we all got lined up for 2018? So far I’ve got Bon Iver, Idles, Sigrid, Arcade Fire and All Points East Fest (The National day). Tempted by Young Fathers and Everything Everything but funds are tight!
